MIKE GUNN- work in progress
This show will ruthlessly explore the relationship between the impact of the Cultural Revolution on China, Vicks vapo-rub and life as performance. With influences as diverse as David Icke, Deepak Chopra and Katie Price, a multiplicity of tragi-comic variations will be synthesized from both orderly and random discourse. And there will be knob jokes.Ever since I was a child I have been fascinated by the ephemeral nature of the human condition, the differences between cats and dogs and big boobies. What started out as contemplation however, soon mutated into a tragedy of defeat, leaving only a lingering sense of unreality and pointlessness. And the fascination with big boobies.My goal is to bring the audience face to face with their own preconceived hierarchy of cultural values, to question their assumptions of artistic worth and ultimately confront them with the pointlessness of reading a description of a non-existent show. There will be no reference to me looking through a crow’s beak.
The Guardian “Mike Gunn will make you die laughing”
